The Crisis Support Team (CST) is a free resource for
guidance and advice for school administrators or youth leaders when dealing
with tragic events such as a suicide, suicide attempt, automobile related injury,
school violence, and death that sometime happen in our schools, churches, youth
organizations, and communities.
Crisis Support Team (CST) is a collaborative effort between
The Jason Foundation, Inc. and Acadia Healthcare. CST will provide telephonic
assistance from clinical professionals who will listen and share insights on
the most appropriate way to handle a crisis event. This service is NOT crisis
counseling for individuals, but rather guidance for administrators or leaders
responding to groups dealing with adverse events.
First contact is made via a special website by filing out a
short, informational form. Connection to
a clinical advisor typically occurs within 24 hours of contacting the Team.
Weekends or holidays can delay the response to the next business day.
